FAIRFIELD, Conn. -- The Demonstration & Display Garden in Drew Park on Warde Terrace in Fairfield has been selected as an All-America Selections Display Gardens.
It joins a group of 183 All-America Selections Display Gardens in North America and is the first in Connecticut. By participating, the Drew Park Demonstration & Display Garden will be allowed to display the flowers and plants that have been declared All-America Selections winners in the past five years.
“The town is very proud that our community garden is the only one in the state to receive this prestigious honor," said Fairfield First Selectman Michael Tetreau. "I thank everyone who has been involved in this endeavor from its inception in 1995 to now, and I encourage the public to visit these beautiful gardens.”
Drew Park Demonstration & Display Garden is maintained by community volunteers from the community garden, Greenfield Hill Grange and Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church and is led by UConn Master Gardener Intern Eric Frisk. In addition to displays in the Demonstration & Display Garden, plant varieties also are displayed in special needs gardens maintained by gardening partners from Abilities Beyond Disabilities and Project Triumph of the Kennedy Center.
